, this entire thing. people in this country need help. everybody knows it, and the reason i am calling is president obama at some point has said that what we ought to do is give doctors the money, extra healthfor preventive care. you go into a doctor's office nowadays, and the first thing he does is give you a pill. a lot of people, they will give you samples. a lot of of people don't know, but these doctors get money for pressuring certain pills. and i think that is absolutely wrong. evidently, it is not illegal. i think somebody ought to look into that, because it would bring down the cost of everything. it would make people a lot healthier, because you would get and in ar, possibly better way. it would just keep a lot of these banks out of the ointment -- snakes. mitch mcconnell put out a statement on the three-year anniversary of obamacare -- host: we want to show you more of what the senator had to say. this is a statement they put out on youtube.

, the radicalization and extremism gets worse. >> the ripple effect, the reason when president obama is in jordan, right, it's because jordan has how many hundreds of thousands of syrian refugees who fled. 500,000 come to a small country with few resource. the united states is trying to help. you're right. what's happening in syria is horrific. the ruple effect around the globe is horrific. i cannot listen to, again, talk about the arab awakening. we're settling in some of the worst settlements without expressing my own concern for what's happening for women in some of these countries. look at egypt, tunisia. women were on the front lines in many of these revolutions and now they are being shoved aside. there's a lot to be concerned. >> on the syrian issue, the foreign intervention on the syrian issue seems to me such a thorny thing. because at one time we're saying that foreign intervention is exacerbating the conflict because arms and money is flowing in. on the other side we're saying we need to bring it to close. those two things are at contention with each other. >> the foreign intervention
